Pi & Opera in our ‘Hood’

A couple of weeks ago, we celebrated ‘Pi Day.’ Not sure what that is? Well, since I come from a long line of nerds, this was a fun day to celebrate.

Pi, mathematically speaking, is the circumference of a circle divided by its diameter, which always ends up being 3.14xxxxxxxx… So March 14 (3.14) is the perfect day to celebrate Pi day. Additionally, it happens to be the birthday of one of the smartest guys in history, Albert Einstein, who was born March 14, 1879.

Where does Opera fit into this?

Well, a bunch of SB neighbors decided to celebrate Pi Day at Pi-carelli’s restaurant. (Can you see why we made that choice?) And during our celebration dinner, Joe Picarelli brought over a fellow to sing us a song. And boy did he sing it!! He sang (acapella!) a beautiful Italian Opera piece that resonated throughout the whole restaurant.

Joe was so pleased by our positive reaction that he has invited this gentleman to come back to Picarelli’s this Saturday from 6-9pm to sing for us again.

If you have no plans this Saturday evening, head over to Joe’s and enjoy some Italian Opera with your glass of vino. Maybe we’ll see you there!

Ciao for now, Patty

P.S. Notice in the photo that Joe created some pizzas with the ‘Pi’ symbol made from pepperonis. And he did it just for our neighborhood. How cool is that? So join us next year as we again Pi Day together.
